Here is the weekly review of the top performing New Zealand players, who play currently abroad.


Tai Jack Webster
Tai Jack Webster
   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Tai Jack Webster (193-95, college: Nebraska, currently plays in EuroCup). He could not help Galatasaray (1-1) in their last game. Despite Webster's very good performance the third-placed Galatasaray (1-1) lost 92-103 on the road to the second-ranked ratiopharm Ulm in the group A of Eurocup. He had a double-double by scoring 17 points and making 10 passes in 43 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Webster's second season in pro basketball. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Webster's first year with the team. He has relatively good stats this season: 12.0ppg, 7.0apg, 3FGP: 37.5% and FT: 75.0% in two games he played so far. Ex-Advice First Waikato Pistons player is currently a member of the New Zealand senior national team.
